. he has been nominated for secretary of defense, and the neo-cons are not thrilled about the prospect of hagel heading up the military because they are concerned that he won't protect the defense budget from the sharp spending cuts that are expected with the ending of the wars in iraq and afghanistan, and the looming threat of the sequester, those cuts could slash the pentagon's budget -- here is what the pentagon's budget is $553 billion and the sequester would slash that budget by $50 billion this year. so the pentagon is looking into what areas it could cut from maintenance on warships to military base operations. last friday the pentagon announced layoffs for 46,000 contract and temporary civilian employees. 46,000. so if chuck hagel makes it through this mine field of senate confirmation questions, he'll inherit another challenge which is how to manage and advocate on behalf of a gigantic government department that believes it has been reduced to scrounging for change. joining me tonight to talk about this is fred kaplan, fred is the author

. this is defense spending over time. kind of random, in one quarter, defense spending goes up and down, all over the map. that doesn't say anything about defense policy, just a characteristic of how the pentagon spends. it happens in fits and starts for a bunch of different reasons. the defense spending chart is what economics geeks call lumpy. but when it gets lumpy, drops sharply, gdp goes down. the last big dip on the defense spending chart there, the really big dip there? that is last quarter, the one where we had the overall shrinkage. the only other big plunge in defense spending coincided with the unexpectedly bad economic quarter for the whole year. the other thing, i say this about policy, it is just about the scale of how much we spend on defense. we spend so much money on defense that when we stop spending all of a sudden the economy really feels it. defense spending jumps around a lot for a lot of different reasons. and when it jumps way down like it did last quarter, that is when we get the square economic growths alert like we did today. we'll be right back.
